InVEST Scholarship contest is just around the corner and InVEST needs your help
in promoting the contest to students.
year, InVEST struggles to get in more scholarship applications and encourage
students from new schools to apply. We’re asking your help to spread the word
about our scholarship program in hope that with your help, we will have the
most scholarship applications to date and in more states!
We’re hoping at least one volunteer from each of our over 500 programs
can commit to speak to InVEST students once about the scholarship program.
InVEST has a great PowerPoint available for volunteers to explain the scholarship
program and process and cool handouts that include 3D like glasses and a hidden
message to distribute to students.
find out if there is an InVEST program near you, visit the Where is InVEST
the website and click on your state. If you’d like to volunteer in a local
program, contact Jennifer Robinson at Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org.
addition, the InVEST Teacher of the Year award and Dach Award (Volunteer of the
Year) are also in need of nominations.
Gary Preston InVEST Teacher of the Year award acknowledges an InVEST teacher who has made substantial
contributions to his or her InVEST students. These individuals are often
nominated by agent liaisons, state/local agents’ associations or students.
InVEST is pleased to name the InVEST Teacher of the Year Award in honor of
Florida educator Gary Preston. The award will bear Preston's name for the next
